Introducing Sawyer John!

It's been way too long since I have updated my blog. I realized that Sawyer hadn't even made his debut on here. It's been a crazy 11 weeks. Sawyer has grown so much. He already 12+ pounds! In these first couple months, he has had some rough moments. A little colic at times, but mostly dealing with reflux and gas. I am sure you all wanted to know that! But that creates one fussy baby. He has been a little more work than Lucy as a baby, even though it's been hard...I wouldn't have it any other way.

My maternity leave is coming to an end. I head back to work in one week. I am very grateful to have spent time home with Sawyer and Lucy. However, I am excited now to have Spring on it's way, and start a new chapter.

Below are some of my favorite pictures taken of the kids. And some newborn shots of Sawyer!

Gotta love the Huskers Gear!

Lucy loves her new hat from Grandma Nelson!
He is posing already!

I love giving him kisses on those chubby cheeks.

So sleepy...John loves it!

Showing off those dimples...YES!

Love those cuddle favorite!

So sweet and peaceful...these were the early days!

Lucy loves to hold Mr. Sawyer!

36 Weeks

36 weeks

Progress today at my 36th week appointment. Baby boy is measuring a week behind...but I am now dilated to one! Doctor still talked about me going early, so I am hanging on to that. Lost weight from last week - which is fine. I haven't gained as much this time - which again I am thankful for.

He still moves WAY more than Lucy...sometimes I just have to stop and wait...because his movements are so strong.

We finished his room this past week. Feels good to have things washed and ready to go. Just need to get the car seat ready...and back a little bag. We also were able to tour the hospital last weekend. Delivery will be at Southdale, instead of Abbott. It's a lot closer, and just as nice. Nice to know where we are going for the real deal.

Besides planning for him...we are approaching Thanksgiving. We are planning on putting up the Christmas decorations and just hang out as a family. And maybe, just maybe I might venture out on Friday to shop. Could be a mistake...but could also be great fun!

We will miss family this weekend (suppose to be with the Ledbetter/Sweet side)...but thankful taht we will see family at Christmas.

Happy Thanksgiving!
